Tendon disorders are frequent and are responsible for substantial morbidity both in sports and in the workplace. Tendinopathy, as opposed to tendinitis or tendinosis, is the best generic descriptive term for the clinical conditions in and around tendons arising from overuse. Tendinopathy is a difficult problem requiring lengthy management, and patients often respond poorly to treatment. Preexisting degeneration has been implicated as a risk factor for acute tendon rupture. Several physical… 

Figures from this paper

Tendinopathy: injury, repair, and current exploration
TLDR
The clinical importance of tendinopathy, the structure of healthy tendons, tendon injury, and healing, and a discussion of current approaches for treatment that highlight the need for the development of new nonsurgical interventions are focused on.
Tendinopathy
TLDR
The histological features, the pathogenetic theories of tendinopathy, and the possible sources of pain are reviewed and the association between tendinopathic and pain should be clarified.
Eccentric Exercise Interventions for Tendinopathies
TLDR
The concept of ECCENTRIC EXERCISE in TREATING TENDINOPATHies will be discussed, and exercise interventions will be provided for common Tendinopathies.
Patellar tendon: From tendinopathy to rupture
Autograft Reconstruction for Chronic Achilles Tendon Disorders
TLDR
The use of 3 different minimally invasive tendon transfer techniques in the management of patients with a chronic rupture of the tendon Achilles, undertaking a free transfer of the semitendinosus tendon, or aTransfer of the peroneus brevis or flexor hallucis longus tendons are described.
Regenerative medicine techniques in the management of chronic tendinopathy
TLDR
No current gold standard exists in the treatment of tendinopathy, and physicians face a unique challenge in treating this common pathology.
Imaging of Ankle Tendinopathy and Tears
TLDR
This review covers the imaging modalities used to assess tendons about the ankle and issues related to their usage, normal tendon structure and relevant anatomy, normal imaging appearances and artifacts, and the common degenerative pathological processes which imaging can show.
Peroneal Tendon Disorders Lawrence A . DiDomenico
TLDR
A commonly overlooked cause of lateral ankle pain is pathology of the peroneal tendons, which is a chronic condition that is highly resistant to conservative care, making surgery oftentimes a necessity.

TLDR
It is the opinion is that a precise difference exists between the structures of these two types of coverings.
Achilles Tendon Lesions in Sport
TLDR
The specific factors of the various conditions demonstrated as causes of Achilles tendon pain are set out and the value of different laboratory and other investigations indicated in the particular pathological conditions are indicated.
Achilles tendinitis and peritendinitis: Etiology and treatment
TLDR
The authors speculate that runners are susceptible to Achilles tendinitis with peritendinitis due to micro- trauma produced by the eccentric loading of fatigued muscle, excess pronation producing whipping action of the Achilles tendon, and/or vascular blanching.
Chronic achilles peritendinitis: etiology, pathophysiology, and treatment.
TLDR
The anatomy of the Achilles tendon is reviewed and recent literature concerning the etiology, pathophysiology, and rehabilitation of chronic Achilles peritendinitis is presented.
Prevention and Treatment of Overuse Tendon Injuries
TLDR
Treatment can proceed with elimination or correction, if possible, of these conditions, together with control of inflammation and programmes of modalities designed to restore the structural and functional integrity of the tendon.
Achilles tendonitis in runners: A report of five cases
TLDR
It is the belief of the authors that Achilles tendonitis in the runner often represents a microscopic tear in the tendon which, if not adequately treated, may lead to a macroscopic tear.
an Operative Approach to Achilles Tendinopathy
TLDR
In insertional tendinopathy, the pre-Achilles bursa is removed, together with the lateral and medial outgrowth of bone and cartilage of the posterior border of the calcaneus, as is done with Haglund deformity, thus preventing further impingement of the tendon insertion.
